View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to delete Spring(Lobby)?

April 10th, 2009, 06:28 PM
Hey guys,
For some reason I am quickly losing HD space like no other and I am wondering how to delete spring. I can't find the files if I search for it but it appears in my applications bar. I try to add/remove but it doesn't show up there either. Any ideas? Thanks.:D

If you installed it using the ppa, you should be able to find it using Synaptic Package Manager. If you installed from source, use:

make uninstall

in the source directory

I used Synaptic Package Manager. Thank you, I learn something new about Ubuntu every day.

As a complete ubuntu noob, I can add some more details that I found along the way:

First find the History:
System --> Administration --> Synaptic Packet Manager

and then in the File menu you should find "History" (here you should find what packages were installed)

To remove this horrible game ;) use these commands:

sudo apt-get remove springlobby
sudo apt-get autoremove

and don't forget to remove the entry that the installation instructions told you to add in System --> Administration --> Software Sources
